The Four Most Powerful Words of Leadership

Recently at our weekly 7:00 AM veterinarian meeting, we had a discussion on submitting to a process, to an organization, or even to your spouse. And along with it, the process of committing to the same relationships. As I shared in that meeting, I had fully committed to my wife since we had started dating, but I hadn’t fully submitted to her and the greater good of our marriage until about ten years ago.

Some folks like Mark Wahlberg, brother of Donnie Wahlberg of New Kids on the Block, and member of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch(how about those throwback groups!), is one of the best time managers on the planet.
